I have stayed in this hotel probably 12 times in the last 3 months (June-August). I'm a regular Candlewood guest from other locations so I can compare this branch with the rest. Hotel Rates: Hotel rates are very reasonable compared to other hotels in surrounding area. They even have promo rates if you are an IHG member which is good....

Everyone was so friendly, especially Dominique and Andreus! They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was excellent. I have never experience such wonderful customer service. I will be staying there again!

The staff Dominique and Kendall bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable! They could have easily been very inflexible with our reservations because we had some unexpected changes. They did everything in their power to accommodate us and make our stay pleasant,

Our experience here was very positive. I loved that we had a full kitchen and fridge/freezer with dishes etc. We had an in-room coffee maker plus the free coffee in the lobby. The room was clean, wifi was fast, and the front desk staff was wonderful. The only down side to this place was no complimentary breakfast, but you have...

We stayed here one night after a visit to Duke Medical, which is no fun. The room was comfortable and clean and had all of the amenities you would expect. Noise does easily move between the doors that adjoin two rooms so, if they have any, I would opt for a non-adjoining room. The location is good and the parking...

The positive: The price. This was a cheap room that we were basically only staying in for a few hours before a flight. Location- also pretty good as it was less than 15 mins to the airport/car rental center. The front desk person- he was pleasant. The negative: Room quality. Granted, we got here at 10:30pm.

I stayed here one night while traveling for business. The price was very good considering the mini kitchen that is available. The little store they have is lacking. There were hardly any drinks to purchase and no bottled water at all.
